Could one or a few of you be saints and post some scales in minor? in particular C minor? i really want to get metal solos down- i know (like most people i see on here lol) the major & minor pentatonic scale, but that gives me much too much of a classic rock/classic metal solo when i improvise or write in it. So pleease post them, it will be greatly appreciated- and any other scales you think would benefit me for those metal (real heavy stuff, i can already play metallica style solos lol, think drop C) solos im after. thanks very much

Take your C Major Scale

C D E F G A B C

now since its minor, that means we flat the third, so

C D Eb F G A B C

or you could also flat third, sixth, and seventh, giving you

C D Eb F G Ab Bb C

Of course you can also do Harmonic Minor, which has a flatted third and flatted sixth

C D Eb F G Ab B C

A major scale with a flat third is not natural minor, it's melodic minor.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

wow cheers guys =)

A major scale with a flat third is not natural minor, it's melodic minor.

What would the C Natural Minor scale be then? thanks

Flat the 3, flat the 6 and flat the 7 to get Natural Minor. Aeolian and Natural Minor are just the same thing. Or you could just call it minor.

To get a natural minor from a major, locate the sixth degree and build the scale using the notes from the major, so:

G A B C D E F# G

E is the sixth degree so it will be the root of the relative minor:

E F# G A B C D E

To find a relative minor quicker, go down 3 semitones from the major to find the root, which is basically the same as finding the 6th degree, just simpler.

Here's an easy moveable position starting on the 6th string for any minor scale:


l - - - l - o - l - - - l - o - l - o -l
l - - - l - o - l - o -l - - - l - o -l
l - o -l - o - l - - - l - o - l - - - l
l - - - l - o - l - - - l - o - l - - - l
l - - - l - o - l - - - l - o - l - o -l
l - - - l - o - l - - - l - o - l - o -l

It didnt align that well, but I hope you understand what I'm saying. Just move that pattern anywhere on the neck and you have a minor scale. For example, start at the 12th fret using this pattern and you have a E minor; or the 5th fret, A minor.

Minor Formula: 1 2b3 4 5 b6 b7

Harmonic Minor: 1 2 b3 4 5 b6 7

Melodic Minor Formula: 1 2 b3 4 5 6 7.

Do that to any major scale and you have your scales.
